Watch: new X Factor trailer slated by Shayne Ward
News and gossip from the world of TV
The exciting new X Factor 2012 trailer has premiered. It features Leona Lewis, One Direction, JLS, Olly Murs, Alexandra Burke and Little Mix - stars the show has made.
However, X Factor fanatics will notice surprise omissions; Olly Murs didn't even win X Factor, but Shayne Ward, Joe McElderry and Matt Cardle did. And they're not in it.
Commenting on Twitter, series two winner Shayne said: "Just seen the new X Factor promo video. Yet again it's like I'm being erased slowly from their history. Pathetic really. Would love to know why?"
Joe McElderry - who won in 2009 - posted a message many fans believe to be prompted by the trailer: "I'm just gonna keep doing my thing :D #thatisall #loveforthemassive."
Maybe they weren't available on the day of the shoot. Maybe they'll turn up in later promotional trailers. Maybe...
In the trailer, One Direction, JLS, Leona, Olly Murs, Alexandra Burke and Little Mix watch footage of themselves as kids and at their first X Factor auditions; they enthuse about the show and what it has done for them.
The message is simple: "Whose time is now?"
The ninth series kicks off in August; who will impress judges Nicole Scherzinger, Gary Barlow, Tulisa and the (uncle) Louis Walsh? And what's the betting Louis has got the groups again?
